The current global pandemic has made everyone realize how important it is not just to practice proper hygiene habits, but to also find ways to manage stress and care for oneself as we adjust to the new normal.
Even celebrities like Angel Locsin are now being more mindful of how their lifestyle and work can affect their overall well-being.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the actress admitted that this remains a big concern for her, especially as she continues her social welfare and community projects.
“Actually, nandiyan yung concern and yung fear na magkasakit every time lumalabas ako ng bahay,” Angel pointed out.
“Maraming nagsasabi na mabuti raw na hindi ako natatakot sa COVID. Actually, nandiyan yung takot … so sinisigurado ko na lang na safe yung mga pinupuntahan namin. Mayroon din kaming face shields, masks, at complete [protective] gear.”
For the actress, caring for one’s well-being is essential if you want to continue helping people.
“People should look after their well-being because having good health is key to being able to work properly, to overcome yung mga challenges, and para makatulong sa iba,” Angel said.
“Paano natin maalagaan yung mga mahal natin sa buhay kung hindi okay ang ating sarili?”
Here are some of the ways Angel cares for herself amid these challenging times.
1. TAKE THE TIME TO REST.
“I make sure na mayroon akong rest day in between ng work and ng mga activities para maka-recover din yung katawan at makapahinga,” Angel explained, adding that she usually does this by unwinding at home and watching shows on Netflix.
Essential oils are a big help, too.
“Mahilig din ako sa essential oils. Para ma-relax, nag-didiffuse ako nun para rin sa overall wellness ng katawan,” she added.
2. PRIORITIZE YOUR HYGIENE.
Angel believes that practicing proper hygiene and health protocols should remain everyone’s priority.
“Always tayong maghugas at mag-sanitize ng kamay. That's very important kasi that's our first line of defense against sa mga sakit,” she said.
She also reminds people who step out of their homes to work or run errands to make sure they take a bath as soon as they get home
3. TAKE YOUR VITAMINS.
The actress said this is particularly crucial while we are in the middle of a health crisis.
“Kailangan natin pagtibayin ang ating immune system,” Angel said. “Magagawa natin ito sa pamamagitan ng pag-inom ng vitamins — like vitamin C and zinc — and other supplements.”
She explained that these help her stay strong, especially when she’s feeling tired or stressed
But for medicines prescribed by her doctor, Angel, who underwent surgery for her spine injury, makes sure she chooses a brand she can trust, like RHEA GENERICS.
RHEA GENERICS is a generics unibrand that offers the same world-class quality as branded medicines but at generic prices.
This is possible because the brand’s products are manufactured at the same production facilities as RHEA GENERICS' global pharmaceutical partners: Pfizer/Upjohn, Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline, Otsuka, Merck, Fresenius Kabi, AstraZeneca, OEP Philippines, and Lundbeck.
As Angel explained, “Sigurado kasi ako na gawa ng mga eksperto at nasubukan na ng marami.”
